As promised, here's another render showing off the wings a bit more. Just keep in mind that for the functionality to work, I needed to increase the density of the feathers quite drastically compared to the show-style wings. The wings I have here are able to fold up and spread without model swaps, which I felt was the most important things to get working when figuring out wings. But in terms of their cosmetic look, I'd certainly like to hear some more feedback.

The wings are the same model I used in the last render, but I also changed a few things with the materials for the model as a whole. The most prominent change is the change to the hair materials, which should actually shade more like hair compared to before (the Specular highlight is no longer just plain white):

Before: TestRender3 v5 (HAIR BEFORE) by TheRealDJTHED After: TestRender3 v8 (HAIR AFTER) by TheRealDJTHED

Very nice change, the hair does look better by comparison, even if the change was minor.

I don't want to be rude, the model is very good, but the wings look really off. They look like cardboard glued onto her, and the feather shapes themselves look nothing like real feathers (or like the feathers in the show). I think studying bird wing anatomy would help a lot!
